    Exclamation Mygica X8550 - CX23885

    Hello all,
    I am new here as a registered user, but have been using and referring to ubuntu forums for the past 3 years now. I have always found my answers here and never really had to register, but this question is driving me to the edge of my seat.
    Some details- Ubuntu 10.04, 64 bit computer.
    I have a MygicaX8550A TV Tuner(PCI-E) and am unable to get it up and running in ubuntu. here is what lshw show it as:
              description: PCI bridge

    Please help me get this up and running, I have scoured through this forum and the INTERNET to find an answer, but to no avail. Please help me get this card running because this is the only thing that is holding me from completely moving away from 7.
    I shall be here all day waiting for responses. If you need more information, let me know.

    Create a config file:

    sudo nano -w /etc/modprobe.d/cx23885.conf
    and type in the following line:

    options cx23885 card=20
    save the file and reboot.

    This worked for me... thanks to kc on #ubuntu-mythtv on the freenode irc network for helping me figure this one out. I would imagine that if this doesn't work for you, you could also try using the other Hauppauge HVR-12xx card numbers and hopefully one would work.

    Edit: sorry. I was looking for a different post that I had come across involving the HVR-1250 card. After posting this, I realised that you aren't using a Hauppauge card. I should have looked closer. Anyway, maybe it can't hurt to just go down the list until one hopefully works?

    Sorry to dredge up an old topic, but I was curious if a solution had been figured out to get the X8550 card working?

    Hy I had the same problem with my PCI-E TV Card based on cx23885.
    Then I create config file in /etc/modprobe.d after resetting PC
    with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS the driver cx23885.ko was loaded and then PCI-E TV Card are defines correctly. But I stil have not /dev/video{N} or /dev/dvb{N} in udev parent root.
    I`d read RTFM about udev, udevd and udevadm but really nothing understand how can I make the rule for this device.
    So I want to ask somebody help me
    Give me please for an example a listing of its files-of-rules.rules from /etc/udev/rules.d directory
    Thanks heaps all.

    If a post is older than a year or so and hasn't had a new reply in that time, instead of replying to it, create a new thread. In the software world, a lot can change in a very short time, and doing things this way makes it more likely that you will find the best information.
